The LipiFlow System (TearScience, Morrisville, NC) is an in-office FDA approved treatment for meibomian gland dysfunction. It relieves meibomian gland obstruction through the use of heat a...
The purpose of this study is to demonstrate that iLux MGD treatment is comparable to LipiFlow MGD treatment at 12 months post single treatment.
The investigators are going to Investigate the comparative efficacy of intense pulsed light therapy alone with that of intense pulsed light plus meibomian gland expression for meibomian gl...
This study will test the efficacy and safety of application of LED light to meibomian glands in upper and lower eyelids in eyes of patients suffering with meibomian gland disease.
Meibomian glands are a kind of sebaceous gland located in the tarsus of lower and upper lids and their function is to express lipids to the tear film. The secretion of lipids, polar and no...
This study aims to optimize the therapeutic regimen for refractory obstructive meibomian gland dysfunction (o-MGD) patients by combining intraductal meibomian gland probing (MGP) and intense pulsed li...
Meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD) is the leading cause of evaporative dry eye disease and is one of the most common conditions encountered by eye care providers. MGD is characterized by obstruction of...
The 2011 International Workshop on Meibomian Gland Dysfunction was organized to build consensus on various disease aspects of MGD. The purpose of this review was to examine the influence of the MGD Wo...
To test the safety and efficacy of high frequency electrotherapy (ET) on the clinical signs and symptoms of patients affected by dry eye and meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD).
To investigate the correlation between the clinical grading of the severity of meibomian gland dysfunction (MGD) and meibomian gland area (MGA) loss detected using Sirius meibography in the upper and ...
Purulent infection of one of the sebaceous glands of Zeis along the eyelid margin (external) or of the meibomian gland on the conjunctival side of the eyelid (internal).
Treatment using irradiation with light of low power intensity so that the effects are a response to the light and not due to heat. A variety of light sources, especially low-power lasers are used.
Chemical analysis based on the phenomenon whereby light, passing through a medium with dispersed particles of a different refractive index from that of the medium, is attenuated in intensity by scattering. In turbidimetry, the intensity of light transmitted through the medium, the unscattered light, is measured. In nephelometry, the intensity of the scattered light is measured, usually, but not necessarily, at right angles to the incident light beam.
A light-sensitive neuroendocrine organ attached to the roof of the THIRD VENTRICLE of the brain. The pineal gland secretes MELATONIN, other biogenic amines, and neuropeptides.
Treatment of disease by exposure to light, especially by variously concentrated light rays or specific wavelengths.
